I raise this question for many reasons really ,thinking back on their past history and how they have responded to past failures .that they explain away as human imperfections.
On the one hand they claim to be Gods spokesperson on earth .The only True religion God is using to dispense his truths at the proper time. And that members of the GB are the F&DS class assigned to do this.
Or do they deliberately manipulate witnesses vulnerability about world events ,disasters ,earthquakes etc ,to prey on those fears about the GT /Armageddon.
That they are constantly warned about
And that it is impending.
Producing videos that show how JW`s will be persecuted round up and imprisoned simply for being a JW .on a worldwide scale .
The bunker video ?
And producing no evidence for justifying such a claim.
The GB of Jehovah`s Witnesses are deliberately trying to cause a paranoia atmosphere among the R&F hoping to achieve an outcome that will validate their own prophecy and give them more traction .
The longer they can dangle this carrot of a Paradise Earth and a New System the longer they can live the life they have chosen for themselves .
But I don`t believe they believe it anymore .
